What’s it Like Buying Medical Marijuana in Texas?

Buying medical marijuana in Texas is most easily done online or over the phone. Texas Original has a location in Austin, but you cannot shop for products at any of the authorized pickup locations. The three dispensary websites are structured like conventional online stores.

They offer in-depth descriptions regarding the strain of cannabis present in the product, typical indications for use, and potential side effects. You must register for an account with the dispensary to make online purchases. Staff is available by phone to answer questions about the products.

Orders are typically available for same-day pick-up. Texas does not issue medical marijuana cards. When you pick up your order, the dispensary staff member will verify your enrollment on the CUP registry and check your photo ID to confirm your identity.

If your cannabis is delivered, you must be present at the time of receipt so the delivery person can verify your ID and registry enrollment.

The dispensaries have loyalty and rewards programs to help you get discounts on cannabis. Check their websites or call to ask about special pricing for veterans, pediatric patients, and those with financial hardships.

Tips for Purchasing Medical Marijuana Products

For qualified patients, Texas dispensaries sell beverages, gummies, tincture oils, capsules, lozenges, topical products, and a variety of other items containing cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). When starting your treatment, take the smallest dose at the longest interval. Then gauge how your symptoms respond and adjust the dosage and timing as needed.

Oils and edibles are designed to enter the bloodstream through the mouth or stomach, making the onset of their effects slower but their duration longer. It's important to wait for a response to your initial dose before taking more of the medication.

You should tell your doctor about all your symptoms when obtaining your prescription. They will select the form of cannabis best suited for managing the effects of your qualifying condition.
